In response to Peter Murphy,
We are always harder on our own.
Read the merit badge requirements, talk to the counselor before starting on
the merit badge. For some MB's a collection is needed, it doesn't say start
a collection, so if a lad has been collecting the needed item for the last 8
years, he can use it. For others, they require starting after the date of
the first contact with the counselor, so what you did prior has no bearing.
Follow the requirements to the letter and your son and every other boy will
endure the same pleasures and hardships.
